UK Mountain Weather Forecasts
These are the sites we use for weather forecasting and observations in the mountains of the UK. We tend to gather information from several forecasts as the mountainous and coastal areas in our country are notoriously difficult to predict accurately for.
We are not affiliated with nor endorse the following websites, we just find them useful and hope you will do too.
Mountain Weather Information Service (MWIS)
The Mountain Weather Information Service is possibly the most-used of the UK mountain weather forecasts. It provides daily 3-day text forecasts for the main mountain activity areas.
The forecasts are divided into mountainous areas, and are updated at around 4:30pm each day. Below are links to each forecast.
Hills accessed from Callander, Loch Tay and Loch Rannoch areas. Areas east of Loch Ericht, and south of Dalwinnie, upper Glen Feshie and the River Dee (includes southernmost Cairngorm NP).
Western Highlands accessible from, and south of, Glenfinnan (Road to the Isles) and Glen Spean (includes Creag Meagaidh). This area include Ben Nevis and the mountains around Glencoe. In the east, includes Ben Alder south to Loch Lomond and Trossachs NP. Includes Arran and Mull.
Western Highlands accessible from, and North of, Glenfinnan (Road to the Isles) and Glen Spean. This area does not include Mull and areas west of Loch Linnhe, these are found in the West Highlands forecast
MWIS also link to mountain webcams, mountain-related news stories, blogs and range of other services. It truly is an invaluable resource!
Scottish Avalanche Information Service
An absolutely vital resource for hillwalkers and climbers heading into Scotland during winter. Updated forecasts and conditions reports for avalanches for the winter climbing seasons.
Met Office Mountain Forecasts
After a redesign a few years ago the dedicated UK mountain forecasts became a truly useful resource once again. The regions are separated out with clear displays of weather warnings etc.
